    Default laundry detergent

    I was wondering how many of you use perfume free soaps on your pets items like blankets, beds ect? I thought maybe I would buy some all free or something like that just because it seems EB have so many skin problems and they lay with their blankets and on their beds so much I thought maybe that would cut down on any allergies and rashes what ya think?

    I'm dealing with some major skin problems with my two bullies and I've tried All Free (no dyes or perfumes) and Bounce Free dryer sheets and it didn't make a difference but every bully is different so it might be worth a try since, like you say, they have such sensitive systems!

    Agree with @sheshistory I have used both and no difference, but I still use the free stuff most if the time. It is certainly a better option in case there is a perfume or dye sensitivity.

    I use the Kirkland free and clear from Costco on their towels, beddings and anything that'll touch their skin tremendously. I don't put any dryer sheets in the dryer either. With Stig we find that he'll get a couple of hives if our beddings are washed with regular detergent.

    would Dreft or All Free and Clear be about the same thing? Anything for sensitive skin...

    @Kassie i would think any free and clear brand would be the same. better than reg detergent i guess. i get mine in the organic section of kroger.

    Probably. I think Dreft is the "original" when it comes to gentle and less likely to cause reactions. That's why we have washed our baby stuff in it for generations.
